Peace

Iā€™m not the kind of person to be grateful about the good things that happen to me. Naturally pessimistic, I tend to worry about anything bad that happens or might happen at some point. But today I realized something that surprised me: My life is very easy.

I have an easy, fulfilling job. I do not worry about money in any way. I have no concerns other than enjoying my life in any way I want to. I have supportive friends and family, and even the people in my new job have been beyond fantastic. I was surprised by their support, help, and warmth in welcoming me.

I even managed to make the career transition I wanted and now my career path looks great, all the while earning a much bigger salary than ever before.

Not everything is perfect of course. I do not have many luxuries, and live a simple, modest life way under my means. But I am very happy right now. I am happy and at peace.

10th and 11th day

Exhausting. So much to do yet it feels like nothing is getting done. Traveling. Interviewing. I really, really need to sleep.

Also I had a very strange nightmare last night. So strange in fact, I’m going to have to ask my cards about it.

9th Day

What? What happened today? Time flew by and I don’t even know what I did! Between cleaning, shopping, and catching Amazon messengers, the whole day slipped through my fingers without a single words written. *headdesk*

But! I now have a brand new phone, and two new tarot decks that I am very excited to review!

5th day

Today was a nice day. I got a fairly late start, because of some family things, but despite that, I managed to complete all the work I had to do and documents to submit for some applications, and even managed to consecrate and place talismans on my new journal (the last one ended much faster than I had expected).

As for writing, I got 1,361 words today. I was aiming for 1,500, but I’ll take as many words as I can get. Especially since I really liked the scene I finished today. It was a fight scene, and those are always very complicated for me to write, but I really liked how it came out. It’s probably one of the strongest I’ve written, so I’m excited.

Also, I made a bit of an impulse purchase and bought two new tarot decks. But only because Amazon was having a great discount on them and I got them for half price, which is something that would probably not come by again soon.

Now I can’t wait for them to arrive!

4th day

I was out of the house for most of the day, and only got a little over 600 words done in the evening when I arrived. I’m hoping to do some more before going to sleep so that I can at least say I have a thousand, for the day, but I have some small things I need to get ready before that, like feeding the spirits which I haven’t done yet.

Other than that, I had a really nice day. I even got to eat a subway sandwich, which I don’t do very often, maybe a couple times a year.

Oh, and my current journal/book of methods is coming to an end, and I want the next one to be consecrated. It’s such a shame that the moon is waning right now. I’m thinking of buying a bunch of journals and consecrating all of them at once so this doesn’t happen again.

3rd day

20170604_150804-01

Today was a fairly good writing day. I got 2,325 words done, and was so close to reaching 60k on the novel, but had no more time to do it, so it’ll have to wait until tomorrow.

Admittedly, I got a late start because I had to do an invocation and offerings ritual at the second hour of jupiter today, and that along with all the cleaning and preparations got the most of my productive time today. It’s not the waxing moon anymore, but since this was a sort of urgent invocation, I had to make do. Mostly it was the completion rite for a previous invocation I had done a few days ago, but sadly the days didn’t sync up with the moon and other life stuff going on, which was a shame.

Other than that, I finished getting some important documents ready for stuff tomorrow, which was nice since I had been putting it off since yesterday (oh, procrastination, we see each other’s faces again).

Overall…I’ll try to work harder tomorrow. *sigh*

2nd day

20170604_150533-01

I only got 1,238 words written on my novel Sadaehn today. I was hoping for more (and also productivity in other things too) but I was dealing with some emotional/mental issues that just would not leave me alone. I’ve been dwelling on something that keeps draining my mental energy, but I’m glad I could sneak in a few words despite that. Sadly, I am now dealing with a headache because of that.

But I think writing is doing me a lot of good in dealing with all the nonsense going on in my head. It helps me focus and aim for something. I definitely need more focus.

It certainly didn’t help that it was a Void of Course moon today, either (in fact, I’m eyeing it suspiciously tbh). But I’ll be glad when it’s gone tomorrow. I did some tarot readings for certain personal issues today too, which I think came surprisingly in depth. I was only messing around, but they pointed me towards very pressing things I need to work on.

I guess overall, despite my headache, things ended up quite well.
